Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2019-03-29

We did get the long awaited Apple Event this week. Since Apple unloaded many of their releases last week already the event could focus entirely on new subscription services. Apple showed subscription services for magazines (Apple News+), games (Apple Arcade), credit card (Apple Card), and tv series (Apple tv+). Only Apple News+ is available now, the rest will come “later this year.” 10.15 release should be interesting.

More interesting for Apple Admins, the updates for macOS Mojave 10.14.4, iOS 12.2, watchOS 5.2 and tvOS 12.2 were released as well. Since these are the “Spring Updates” they bring with them some new user facing features: Apple News+, dark mode for Safari content, AirPods 2 support. Also some new features for administrators which I already outlined in a post.

Overall, not as big an update as 10.13.4 was, but still quite the event.

Also this week was MacAD.UK, where I presented on “Modern Delpoyment Workflows for Business.” I had a wonderful time meeting everyone at the conference. My thanks to the organizers, speakers and attendees for making this a great event.
